Last weekend’s Fireworks may well have been the most successful ever, with 300 people joining us in the graveyard on a beautiful winter evening. As I chatted with people, it was lovely to hear many say that they’d been personally invited to come. The personal invitation is a very powerful thing in our frenetic, disconnected age. It is the leading way people get connected with church and with Jesus Christ himself. And remember, the apostle Peter came to Jesus through an invitation by his brother Andrew (John 1). Why not personally invite someone along to a Sunday service?
And why not invite them next week, for Dedication Sunday, a special day set aside to give thanks for our church, and reflect on the church’s importance in God’s great plan for the world. We hold just one service at 10.30 am for the whole church family. (Sunday School and Morning Youth will be on at that time too!) Afterwards we all gather for lunch in the Parish Room. Please bring along a plate of savoury food if you can.
The CRU Edge Day Camp (for school years K-6) is fast approaching! It’s the first week of the school holidays, Mon 9th to Fri 13th July. We still have spots available for kids, so do take a flyer and invite families along. There are also two other opportunities to help. We need parishioners to host our leaders, who will be travelling from around Sydney and staying with us. We also need people to help in the kitchen putting together the children’s meals (chef skills not required!).
